About us

Company details

The cellar
Ours is a small wine cellar located at the heart of the Barolo growing area.
It is run by the third generation of wine producers in the Bovio family, who were originally from the Annunziata hamlet.

Gianfranco Bovio began to look after his father Alessandro’s holdings in the 1970s, renovating the old cellars and dedicating himself with passion to the making of wines grown on the estate vineyards that stretch out over 6.5 hectares.
Now it is the turn of Alessandra and her husband Marco Boschiazzo to continue the family tradition, with the co-operation of winemaker Matteo Franchi, and Robert Tofan front of house.

The company philosophy is strongly embedded in tradition and terroir, from the scrupulous tending of the vineyards, through to the ageing of the wines in large oak casks.

Our production includes two Barolo crus - Arborina and Gattera - and a classic-style Barolo made from grapes grown on vineyards in La Morra, Barolo and Castiglione Falletto, plus Nebbiolo Firagnetti, Barbera d'Alba Ciotto and Regiaveja, Dolcetto d'Alba Dabbene and the white Langhe Bianco Alessandro.
